    Locations and family situations resonated with me. Phillips’ writing continuously drew me in, reminding me of the emotional comfort I feel whenever out in wilderness. Thank you for this extraordinary memoir, Mark Phillips.

    Relationships are complicated: especially father-son, blue collar to society, husband-wife, 196o's teen to himself. Of which this story gives honor to. Lots of hidden heros, with great failures. Really great for those looking for WNY history. Relationships are complicated: especially father-son, blue collar to society, husband-wife, 196o's teen to himself. Of which this story gives honor to.

    Good read. I think this book would appeal to men or women equally as it focuses on a father son relationship.
